About the FAFSA Workshops

What to Expect

  1. Financial Aid professionals will be available to answer general and specific questions about completing the FAFSA, CalGrant and California Dream Act forms.

  2. Most families will be encouraged to complete the FAFSA form in the “on-line” format on computers at Workshop locations.  That means that most locations will complete student/family FAFSA forms in computer labs.

  3. Many Workshop locations will include a 45-minute power-point presentation with line-by-line instructions to complete the FAFSA form.

  4. All locations will host an immigrant student [AB540] counselor presenting college opportunities to students without residency status.

  5. Family resource materials will be available to encourage student success.

  1. Bring your parent or guardian and their financial documents such as the 2014 Federal income tax return, their W-2 Forms or any records of earned income.

  2. Bring your Social Security Card, Driver’s License or Alien Registration Card [if applicable].

  3. If you are under-documented, AB540 experts will work with you to determine your eligibility for programs under the California Dream Act, and alternative opportunities for entering the college of your choice.

Cash for College Workshops, in conjunction with CalGrants, provide free, one-on-one professional financial aid assistance to families completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA] and Cal Grant GPA Verification Form, and California Dream Act application [if applicable].

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA] is a required form in financial aid application packets whether you want to attend a four-year college/university, community college, vocational or technical school.  Completing the FAFSA can help you qualify for state and federal aid [including grants and loans], institutional scholarships, and work-study opportunities.

Additionally, each Workshop offers an AB540 advisor working personally with each student and/or their family to complete the California Dream Act application and explore other scholarship opportunities for every situation.
